Dear mind

sleepy time tom edited

dear mind
you are working with a snail’s pace today
do increase the speed a bit
or here on the desk, I may fall asleep
I apologize for slogging you hard yesterday night
but that is the only time you focus with all might
and I do need your help for some days
you will be given ample rest later, my promise
but do co-operate today my dear
I assure you it is not a deliberate torture
just a wee bit of extra work
and then it all be over.

  1. That sounds exactly like me! i push myself mentally so hard some days to finish what I’m writing that I look up at the clock and it is 4:30 in the morning. Uh oh. I’m going to be in trouble tomorrow. I know i will get little sleep, but still I will push myself again because there are words tumbling out. After a few days of this my body just goes to sleep for a nice long time, with many dreams.

    Body clock

    Our bodies are kept in tune with the rhythm of day and night by an internal body clock, which uses light to tell the time.

    But blue light, the wavelength common in smartphones, tablets and LED lighting, is able to disrupt the body clock.

    Blue light in the evening can slow or prevent the production of the sleep hormone melatonin.

    “Sleep deficiency has been shown to increase the risk of cardiovascular disease, metabolic diseases like obesity and diabetes, and cancer.

    “Thus, the melatonin suppression that we saw in this study among participants when they were reading from the light-emitting e-reader concerns us.”
